* ShoutOut: Upon arriving at his new loft, Bart enthusiastically throws his baseball cap in the air, announcing that he's "gonna make it" a la ''S''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow''...only for it to get ripped into a million pieces by the ceiling fan.
* StockAudioClip: During the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XH7Iz4ho1w "anger management problems" scene]], the exact same audio of Homer saying "Why you little...!" is used three times in a row.
* TakeThat: Another dig at Music/MichaelJackson, this time of his infamous public showing of his baby to the media. This episode parodies that with Homer pulling the same stunt during Bart's babyhood...only he winds up dropping him.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Based on a comment by Bart in this episode, it's in a state where murder is illegal.
* WhosOnFirst: When Bart goes to the Blue-Haired Lawyer and explains that he wants to be emancipated from his parents, the lawyer seems to go "you WHAT?!" Bart explains himself again, but the lawyer says that he understood Bart the first time and that he was just calling for his secretary--a woman who happens to be named "Yuwa."

** Another fair point, Bart has spent a majority of his life abused by his father to the point he believed that he himself was failure. However,this piece of evidence shows that before his maturation to childhood, before he could walk and talk, Homer was the complete failure and he used his money for trivial things.

** Another fair point, Bart is already aware that Homer spent all his time at Moe's to drown in beer so that he won't have to see him and his sisters which is already a bad thing in his eyes. Its more than Homer stole his money but he uses it for his own gain.

* IThoughtItMeant: When Homer and Marge receive a subpoena from Bart's lawyer and Bart explains that he wants to be emancipated from them (mainly Homer), Homer initially assumes that it means Bart wants to be a girl (presumably confusing "emancipation" for "emasculation"). Lisa explains to him that in this situation, "emancipated" means that Bart would be declared a legal adult and be able to move out and live on his own despite not being 18 yet (the age that a person is considered to be a legal adult).

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Bart's emancipated from his parents at the age of 10--in real life, you have to be 14 to 17 to be legally emancipated from your parents or legal guardians.
** EveryoneHasStandards: Judge Constance Harm is the one takes up Bart's case against his dad. Despite being known for her cruelty and harshness, as well as acknowledging that Bart's technically too young to be emancipated from his family, even she feels that Bart's probably better off living on his own than being forced to live with a JerkAss like Homer.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: This is the only episode where Bart returns the favor to Homer. Unlike Homer strangling Bart with his hands, however, Bart, being too small to wrap his hands around his fathers neck, strangles Homer in a more violent manner: using Homer's '''belt'''.
